You Can Now Watch Broadway Musicals Online For Free

You Can Now Watch Broadway Musicals Online For Free

If you had a trip to the theatre booked recently, it's looking very likely it could have been cancelled amidst the coronavirus outbreak.

But now, you'll be able to watch Broadway musicals for free online for a limited period. So. Exciting.

Thanks to Broadway HD - a streaming service which started in 2015 - you can watch a theatre performance from the comfort of your living room.

While the platform has been around for a good few years, if you *hadn't* already heard of it, now definitely seems the perfect time to get involved.

You'll have access to the likes of Cats, The King and I, The Sound of Music as well as performances of Kinky Boots and 42nd Street from Broadway and the West End.

There's a collection of 300 productions as well as playlists for those who want to binge watch - which is probably just about everyone right now.

For example, there's a playlist dedicated to Andrew Lloyd Webber, with performances of some of his much-loved productions.

These include Phantom of the Opera, Cats and Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat.

Offering a slice of comfort in these troubling times, viewers can sign up to a free, seven-day trial, after which it's priced at $8.99 (£7.75) per month or $99.99 (£86) for the year. You can sign up here.


You can even purchase a subscription as a gift, which is the ideal pressie for someone who is self-isolating.

Broadway HD has been taking to social media in light of the ongoing outbreak, interacting with viewers over which shows they're watching.

"Here at BroadwayHD, we're hoping that some showtunes can ease some worries & take your mind off things, even if just for a few hours. What are you now watching?" They asked.

And followers have been loving the platform, with one calling it "the perfect stress reliever".

I think we can all agree this catalogue of performances will *definitely* keep us entertained for hours...
